Top rated 6’10 250 lb Mitch McGary, long a Bino recruit has Maryland listed as one of 4 top schools–Arizona, Florida Texas round out the four.
The frustrating thing here is, while I was very much in favor of a coaching change, because I think we all see now that Gary didn’t have the recruiting drive, that a young up and comer has.
Turgeon is out there.
We will win another NCAA Championship inside of 5 years. This time, we will build on it and be a top 10 team every year.
However, I wish all this was done better.
I worry about ANderson. I worry about Faust. I want to keep those 2 more then anyone, because they are from the area.
I think this whole thing could have been handled better. Maybe if Gary had given a little heads up, and even a little heads up to the recruits. The recruits that have been interviewed have said they didn’t hear a word.
Also, it seems Turgeon’s idea of who he wants, is different then what we have all wanted for years. Top 50 kids. We should do whatever it takes to keep them.
I hope we hear Faust is back in the mix soon. Like, by the end of the week.

shocking. ryan actually says some positive things. shocking.
McGary is a physically imposing presence in the paint with good size, tremendous upper body strength, and limitless energy and physicality. He is proactive seeking out contact inside, a consistent finisher, and high volume two way rebounder. He is incredibly active with a terrific motor and great toughness. The lefty is skilled enough to stretch the defense to 18 feet, has the dexterity to dunk with both hands in congestion, and sets big screens both on and off the ball. He runs well in straight lines and has pretty soft hands around the basket.
McGary is more of a screener than he is a back to the basket scorer at this point in his development and needs to establish more of an ability to create his own shot from the post. He also needs to improve his right hand as he is all right shoulder in the post and can only put the ball on the floor with his dominant hand. His basketball I.Q. and feel for the game are also somewhat limited as he plays with more blind aggression at the moment.
A tremendous physical presence in the paint with a great motor and infectious energy and toughness, McGary will be a highly sought after post prospect in the class of 2012.
